Netflix, Riot Games confirm second season of ‘Arcane’


Netflix and Riot Games have confirmed the second season of the hit League of Legends-based series Arcane.

The streaming giant and game developer announced the upcoming follow-up during Riot’s two-day Undercity Nights event on November 19 to 20, which celebrated the end of Arcane season 1.

“We’re beyond happy about the positive response to Arcane’s first season and are working hard with the creative wizards at Riot and Fortiche to deliver our second installment,” said Arcane co-creators Christian Linke and Alex Yee. 

Produced in collaboration with French animation studio Fortiche Productions, Arcane serves as a prequel to the famous battle arena game and follows the origins of champion sisters Jinx and Vi who were separated by the war between the realms Piltover and Zaun.

Season 1 was released in three acts with three episodes each earlier in November. Season 2 will mark the comeback of stars Ella Purnell, Hailee Steinfeld, and Katie Leung, who voiced the characters Jinx, Vi, and Caitlyn respectively in the previous season.

Netflix and Riot’s decision follows Arcane Season 1’s successful premiere, which, according to Engadget, racked up nearly 34.2 million viewing hours in its first week on Netflix’s new top 10 chart.
